    The floor I'm working on is osb subfloor. I was laying down my laminate with an underlayment that also acts as a vapor barrier. I didn't realize this and from my research, this will cause issues later with trapped moisture. The flooring store provided me with the underlay so I thought they gave me the right match. Will this be a problem? Should I just remove it and go buy an underlay without the vapor barrier? I've already lay down about 200sqft so I'd prefer not to redo it especially the joints are very fragile, but if it is an issue, I rather fix it now then later.
    It's the eternity laminate pad and quickstep naturetek laminate if it matters.
